Finavon Castle Water Salmon and Sea Trout Fishing on the River South Esk in Scotland

Prices and Booking

The Finavon Castle Fishings extend to 2.5 miles of mainly double bank fishing for 6 rods. Covering some 24 named pools tenants have the chance to fish in a beautiful managed woodland setting with opportunities to enjoy wildlife such as kingfishers, otters, red squirrels, roe deer and an exceptional range of wildflowers. Finavon gives its visitors a wonderfully peaceful environment with opportunities in the right conditions to catch quality salmon and sea trout.

Anglers visiting Finavon will be warmly met by our ghillie in the morning and given a plan for the day and direction on which pools to fish, as well as any advice required. For anglers who desire the company of a ghillie all day, a personal ghillying service is usually available at a separate cost. Prices per rod day range from £25 in the early spring to £80 in autumn peak weeks. Sea trout fishing in May is £40, June and July £70 per rod day (day and night 7am to 7am).

Fishing at Finavon is easily booked through the Fishpal booking system. Booking via Fishpal
